Masquerade

カイ・ニールセン 「十二人の踊る姫君」
Kay Nielsen, Twelve Dancing Princesses.



CHORUS
Masquerade!
Paper faces on parade
Masquerade!
Hide your face so the world will never find you!

Masquerade!
Every face a different shade
Masquerade!
Look around, there's another mask behind you!

Flash of mauve
Splash of puce
Fool and king
Ghoul and goose
Green and black
Queen and priest
Trace of rouge
Face of beast

Faces!
Take your turn
Take a ride
On the merry-go-round
in an inhuman race

Eye of gold
True is false
Who is who?
Curl of lip
Swirl of gown
Ace of hearts
Face of clown

Faces!
Drink it in
Drink it up
Till you've drowned
In the light
In the sound

CHRISTINE/RAOUL
But who can name the face?

CHORUS
Masquerade!
Grinning yellows, spinning reds
Masquerade!
Take your fill, let the spectacle astound you!

Masquerade!
Burning glances, turning heads
Masquerade!
Stop and stare at the sea of smiles around you!

Masquerade!
Seething shadows breathing lies
Masquerade!
You can fool any friend who ever knew you!

Masquerade!
Leering satyrs, peering eyes
Masquerade!
Run and hide, but a face will still pursue you!


GIRY
What a night!

MEG
What a crowd!

ANDRE
Makes you glad

FIRMIN
Makes you proud
All the creme
De la creme


CARLOTTA
Watching us, watching them

MEG/GIRY
All our fears are in the past

ANDRE/FIRMIN
3 months

PIANGI
Of relief!

CARLOTTA
Of delight!

FIRMIN
Of Elysian peace!

MEG/GIRY
And we can breathe at last

CARLOTTA
No more notes

PIANGI
No more ghost

GIRY
Here's a health

ANDRE/FIRMIN
Here's a toast, to a prosperous year
to our friends who are here

PIANGI/CARLOTTA
And may the splendor never fade!

ANDRE/FIRMIN
What a blessed release!

GIRY
And what a masquerade!

CHRISTINE
Think of it
A secret engagement.
Look, your future bride.
Just think of it.

RAOUL
But, why is it secret?
What have we to hide?
You promised me.

CHRISTINE
No, Raoul, please don't.
they'll see.


RAOUL
Well then let them see. It's an engagement, not a crime.
Christine, what are you afraid of?

CHRISTINE
Let's not argue ...

RAOUL
Let's not argue ...

CHRISTINE
Please pretend ...

RAOUL
I can only hope

CHRISTINE
You will ...

BOTH
... understand in time

ALL
Masquerade!
Paper faces on parade
Masquerade!
Hide your face so the world will never find you!
Masquerade!
Every face a different shade
Masquerade!
Look around, there's another mask behind you!

Masquerade!
Burning glances, turning heads
Masquerade!
Stop and stare at the sea of smiles around you!
Masquerade!
Grinning yellows, Spinning reds
Masquerade!
Take your fill, let the spectacle astound you ...


PHANTOM
Why so silent, good Monsieurs?
Did you think
that I had left you for good?
Have you missed me, good Monsieurs?
I have written you an opera

Here, I bring the finished score
Don Juan Triumphant!
Fondest greetings to you all
A few instructions just before rehearsal starts

Carlotta must be taught to act
Not her normal trick of strutting round the stage
Don Juan must lose some weight
It's not healthy in a man of Piangi's age
And my managers must learn that their place is in an office!
Not the arts

As for our star, Miss Christine Daae ...

No doubt she'll do her best
It's true, her voice is good
She knows, though
Should she wish to excell
She has much still to learn
If pride will let her return to me, her teacher ...
her teacher ...

Your chains are still mine

You belong to me!
